Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


Hi everyone - my name is Richard and I'm new around here. 

I'm a bit of a retro-fan, working in the soulless world of IT as a tech, I relax by working on old stuff with my hands. 

I have restored old Brit and Japanese motorbikes and watches and I'm currently restoring an old table saw which I plan to use cutting firewood, possibly powering it from a stationary engine. 


All of which brings me to this forum. I will be taking delivery of a new shed/workshop in a month or two and at that time I intend to find a mower with issues, which I can restore. Nothing too huge (although our garden is quite large) but it does need to be self-propelled. 

Still, that's for the future. For now, I'm on a learning curve. 

Thank you for allowing me in!

Hello Richard

Welcome to the forum, new workshop sounds exciting, in noting your location we do have keen members near to you who I am sure will help you source a suitable mower, note that in addition to a workshop a storage  shed is requied as it often starts with one mower & then expands!!

Good luck & welcome to the hobby.

Hi Clive

Thank you for both the welcome and the warning. Funnily enough, the Rev. Mrs. Browne is having a summerhouse built... I wonder what my chances are???
